The paper describes building and plant energy simulation simulation within the context of CABD, design decision support and design evaluation. Expand
Thermal comfort in residential buildings: Comfort values and scales for building energy simulation
Building Energy Simulation (BES) programmes often use conventional thermal comfort theories to make decisions, whilst recent research in the field of thermal comfort clearly shows that importantExpand
The results of comparing ten major Building Performance Simulation tools are presented and the key findings are summarized and underlines the major requirements for future improvement and development of BPS tools, mainly from an architectural perspective. Expand
Simulation-based decision support tool for early stages of zero-energy building design
There is a need for decision support tools that integrate energy simulation into early design of zero energy buildings in the architectural practice. Despite the proliferation of simulation programsExpand
Considerations on design optimization criteria for windows providing low energy consumption and high visual comfort
Apparent window size contradictions arise when optimizing simultaneously for low energy (small sizes) and visual comfort (large sizes). Diverse multi-objective optimization methods exist, but basicExpand
Selection criteria for building performance simulation tools: contrasting architects' and engineers' needs
The article reviews current trends in building simulation and outlines major criteria for BPS tool selection and evaluation based on analysing users' needs for tools capabilities and requirement specifications. Expand
Towards more effective use of building performance simulation in design
